With almost 1 in 3 people experiencing poor mental health at work (CIPD), it’s important that organisations have a greater understanding about mental health and are able to identify the early signs and provide the appropriate support to employees.
We need to create environments where our colleagues can thrive and feel confident to discuss mental well-being in the workplace.
With this in mind, here are 3 simple things your organisation can do today to help raise awareness of this important issue:
1) Have a cup of tea with a colleague and chat about mental health
2) Download our free stress management checklist and assess your company’s current mental well-being provision
3) Host a lunch workshop on mental health. Open up the conversation about well-being, share resources and show short video clips. Examples can be found here.
Have a great day and remember, you don't have to be an expert to talk about mental health!
